McQuarrie has now confirmed that the duo will be reuniting beyond the Mission: Impossible franchise for a film tentatively titled The Gnarly Movie. As the film title suggests it will be an R-rated production with plenty of violence. It will be a departure from Cruise’s recent big-budget projects.

‘Venom 3’ and ‘Bad Boys 4’ to release in 2024

Sony has reshuffled their release schedule for 2023 and 2024 as a result of the dual writers and actors strike in the US. The release date of the highly anticipated Spider-Man spinoff Madame Webb has been moved up to Valentine's Day next year, February 14, 2024. While the Dakota Johnson and Sydney Sweeney film is moved up, the Aaron Taylor-Johnson Spider-Man spinoff, Kraven the Hunter, has been postponed to 2024 along with the Ghostbusters sequel. However, it's bad news for Spider-Man fans as Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse has been removed from the release calendar. The other major news is surrounding yet another Spider-Man spinoff.
